  1. Feel it is / will be good! Mind I don't use many topics, so have little problem. I'd wager too, nigh all will get together with it and appreciate the new set up and come to agree it is a good move.
  2. Good ... but how long will that last Fifer? As for the new layout, have no qualms. Will soon get upto date and able. Just a few visits needed I'd say.

    Fantastic. Build up a vigour. Replaces any losses. Brings new blood in. Personally I would race any till 18 months on. Just - if possible, aan opne loft. But certainly kept stres free and contented. then breed fron them - when proven 2 years down the line. Alway having a set bred every year. these are very often the best bred birds, Bred in the pink so to speak. J.M.O.
  4. JCN an apt poen by Donna. The past is the past for a reason. That is where it is supposed to stay, But some cannot let it go. In their heads it eats away Until all their focus becomes The person they used to be, The mistakes they made in their life. Oh, if only they could see That you cannot change what happened, No matter how hard you try, No matter how much you think about it, No matter how much you cry. What happens in your lifetime Happens for reasons unknown, So you have to let the cards unfold. Let your story be shown. Don't get wrapped up in the negative. Be happy with what you have been given. Live for today not tomorrow. Get up, get out, and start living, Because the past is the past for a reason. It's been, and now it is gone, So stop trying to think of ways to fix it. It's done, it's unchangeable; move on. Inbreeding has a lot to answer for .... but the damage is done. Source: https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/changing-the-past
  5. Yes Peter and it was a certian well to do arristocrate that asked Paliment for 2 years grace and make it illegal to hunt,, shoot, poisen etc. BO.P. etc. Never recinded either.
  6. There was a time, when that scenario wouldn't even be a thought eh! Inbreds via inbreds... an out cross and then more imbreeding. Face facts. Advertised pigeon enhance galore the inbredm But then why would they lie? When it makes them a good living and profits. Yes agreed much falsehoods are spouted to entice. Gullibles buy etc. But the very fact that they advertise Inbreds speaks volumes eh!
  7. Well fact is 'Sitting on our hands' hasn't helped in the slightest. Been great ideas put forward to help ALL SHOT down by the very fanciers moaning at that!
  8. Well in a nut shell, too close breeding! as most choose to ignore. Muck nature about and it will come back and slap you in the mouth. Well known fact Openly hopes chosen to be different for you! Especially whn 'Sales' dictate Double grand children of the same birds... 'bred down via incest. P.s. dogs, ... well All results spemmed down from incess breeding - humans including have very weak and declinging faults. fact... So I know 'Lets breed these faults out by ... inbreeding'! Play with fire and you get your finger burnt. Incess - ONCE - for blood. Out crossed for racing is as far as one should tempt!
  9. PARADOX OF OUR TIME, A POEM BY BOB MOORHEAD Posted on September 4, 2015 by Martin Summer Hayes The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Free ways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbour. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things. We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete… Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent. Remember, to say, “I love you†to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.†I came across this the other day and it struck me so much, I thought I’d share it with you……..

    Just Great

    I just loved her 'Bottle' and tanacity. Laura was there through thick and thin and ALWAY gave her all, her evry thing. Heart on sleeve for all to see. Yes she has worked hard for her success and I feel / hope that is the start of a lot more on the world stage.

    Just Great

    Have been a great admirer of Laura Muir as most will know. Her tanicity is the true Scottish stuff. How so very pleased Laura gets a silver ... I was waiting from the Games start to watch her. Over the moon with her winning a silver medal. In a very high class field i might add. To be truthful was prepared and hoping for her to win a Bronce ... Ashamed am I lol Well done gal, proud of yer. Must say the scots have done you proud in these olympics.
  12. Bilco had the soluction. He put it before us time after time ... said it would be exactly how it ... and getting worse. No one listened. All want a 'Shiney Knight' in white armour! P.s never been on... Knight Templears were just a mercenary killing and enforcement agency for the Pope. Till they got too strong ad the Pope had - at great cost and time put an end to their power... Of course the other stutterings was 'There is enogh Rich people, concern owners that have Secretaries and offices etc. They could / should do something! Amy one but the fancier surely.
  13. Like the Belguims do. They give the birds a 'Coffee Bean' too.

    Best Since

    Laura Muir recorded the second fastest time by a British woman over 800m as she beat compatriot Jemma Reekie at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco. Best of scots women athletes since Elizabeth McColgan and Yvonne Murraya and Ian stewart and Ian McCafferty. Proud of them.
